Congrats on your rib2.gif Terje !

Veldig god og tillykke med den røde.
Jeg skal med Hurtigruten 26. juni (hele vejen op og ned) og kan nesten ikke sove :) Har været i Norge mange gange, oftest sørlandet, men en enkelt gang til Alta og derfra til Sørøya, men Hurtigruten er en 30 år gammel drøm, og nu så sker det og jeg får meget mere at se.
Mange gode fotos i din profil Terje.

This is incredible, poster-worthy photographers' photography! Looking at your profile (BIO) image, I get really nervous from the heights Simple unbelievable. If these are self-portraits, how do you set it up??

Congrats. Job well done, especially that you did not fall off. I like this processing compared to the orig photo. Gives it a colder feeling, really adds to the mood. Wow!

For me a red ribbon is a win, I could not have been anymore happy with this! A big thank-you to Patrick Di Fruscia - what a great trip!

Cheers!

Was this Take Two because your previous model died in the first one?

A stunning shot obviously, if a bit cheeky given the theme.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/13/2006 05:19:07 AM
Congrats dude, sorry to "steal" the blue ribbon from you like that, this shot is awesome! I am over in Stavanger pretty much every year and I am always on my way to this fjord to take pictures, this will sure be a kick in the butt to do so next time I am over. Cheerz!

Glad you didn't suffer from vertico, well deserved ribbon.

06/13/2006 03:13:54 AM
congrats on the ribbon.. Lovely composition and amazing views.. If you ever have time on your hands try to selectively desaturate the pic (like bring out the blue or the greens) even a little bit... I'm sure the colours with a landscape will look more stunning

::: Critique Club :::

Hi, my name is Kari and from the critique club.

First Impression - the most important one:
What an awesome picture ... such vastness ... and so completely encompasssing.

Subject:
It is beautiful .. I am not sure which picture this is a retake of ... It is not easily identified ... but if it is of Natures King .. then very well done .. and I think that his shot is improved from the comments you received. But if it is not that shot .. let me know which one ... :)

Composition:
I think this works very well .. the angle that the shot is taken from is very good ... the slight up to the man and big down to the river. The lines of the mountans also create a wonderful leading line for the eye which then takes in the photographer. I would have liked slightly more of the cliff that the guy is standing on as this may have bought him more onto the vertical thirds.

Technical (Colour and light):
I think that the black and white here is really good .. I would not think it works well for landscapes .. but this shot has opened those eyes ... I always like natural light .. .but this shot also has long exposure .. so how did you get him not to move?

To grow its vote?:
Fantasic score as it is .. but to improve maybe a slight recrop .. and I don't know if that would result in the score being upped.

Summary:
Well done .. congrats on the ribbon.

If you've got any questions about this critique, please feel free to contact me via the PM system.

Cheers

Kari

Can't find any photo in your portfolio resembling this one, so I don't think you made a retake at all, but just a free study. Beautiful as it is, I think it's not following the description of the Take two challenge.

That's not true: the rules specifically allow someone else to push the shutter if you are unable to. If Terje set this shot up, framed it and set the exposure etc, and told his friend to click when he was in position on the outcrop, this would be perfectly legal.

I had this as one of my top three rated photos and knew it was going to ribbon the first time I saw it. But I want to know if you could tell us what challenge this was from originally? I went through your portfolio and saw nothing similar at all. I would love to compare your other shot to see how it improved.

I know I have seen this shot around but I can't seem to place it. Doesn't matter as I can't imagine the original being any better than this. Phenomenal shot and I expect to see this one up high in the ranks. WEll done and bumping up.

Edit - bumping up one more time.

Shades of "Ansel Adams at Glacier Point"! I don't think the title's doing this beautiful, old-time feeling shot any favors; it seems so tricial for the grandeur and intensity of the scene. Nice work!
